The Missouri State Genealogical Association was founded in 1979 with the goal of supporting genealogical research and sharing knowledge of and with Missouri's richest resource - its citizens. Since that time the association has grown substantially as methods for finding your ancestors have advanced exponentially. MoSGA assists those interested in Missouri genealogical research through the association's website and publications including this blog, the newsletter and journal.
How does all this help? Anyone interested can submit articles, requests for information or details of an upcoming event for publication. Share with the wide readership of these sources your brick wall OR even the story of how you succeeded in breaking it down. Do you have an ancestor you cannot seem to track who lived in a Missouri county where a courthouse was burned, or records lost? By sharing your story, you may find an answer or a new information source from a MoSGA member who has a similar experience.
Send your requests, stories, brick walls or favorite Missouri family photo to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include your contact information and name so we can share it with our readers. Thanks!
